The 2021 Dakar Rally will be held from the 3rd to 15th January in Saudi Arabia. 108 drivers from different parts of the world, will compete in the test consisting of 12 stages in a massive loop, starting and finishing in Jeddah and rest day on January 9 in the town of Ha'il.

As a novelty, participants in all categories will receive the roadbook just before the departure of each stage and there will be restrictions in the category to restrict costs, such as tyres or the time allowed for riders to work on their bikes. There will also be a Dakar Classic class, which will allow participants to race with vehicles prior to 2000.

The participation of Rieju Team in this competition will allow the official pilots of said team to live an extreme experience and will give an international projection to our brand.

In order to make the experience as satisfactory as possible, RIEJU has entrusted its assistance to the FN SPEED team led by Santi Navarro, with extensive experience of more than 25 years in the world of competition. On this occasion, the motorcycles in competition will be supplied by the FN SPEED team. In this debut, the vehicles are not developed by RIEJU, which makes this first foray to test the needs of future own models.
